FBI searches home of top fundraiser for New York Mayor Eric Adams

FBI agents conducted a search Thursday at the Brooklyn home of Brianna Suggs, who is a top fundraiser for New York Mayor Eric Adams (D), according to two people familiar with the investigation who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the probe.

A spokesman for the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office declined to comment. A text message sent to a phone number listed for Suggs was not immediately returned.

Vito Pitta, a lawyer for Adams’s 2021 campaign, said in a statement to The Washington Post: “The campaign has always held itself to the highest standards. The campaign will of course comply with any inquiries, as appropriate. Mayor Adams has not been contacted as part of this inquiry.”

Adams’s 2025 reelection campaign has raised more than $2.5 million, and paid Suggs Solutions more than $98,000 for fundraising and consulting, according to campaign disclosure reports.

Adams traveled to Washington on Thursday with other mayors to meet with federal officials about migrants’ relocation to their cities.

But the New York mayor abruptly canceled his meetings following the search of Suggs’s home.

Fabien Levy, the deputy mayor for communications, said in a statement to The Post that the mayor “heard of an issue related to the campaign, and takes these issues seriously, so wanted to get back to New York as quickly as possible.”

“He plans to return to DC and reschedule these meetings as soon as he can,” Levy said.
